According to a CNN poll, Trump is now the second runner amongst Republican candidates. Jeb Bush leads with 19%, up from 13% in May. Trump follows at 12%, up from 3% before his announcement. Mike Huckabee (8%), Ben Carson (7%) and Rand Paul (7%) round out the top five. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton leads all other candidates by more than 40 points, with 57% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents behind her and 16% backing Vice President Joe Biden. Trump says the numbers are “representative of the response we are receiving from all over the country.”
I am committed to addressing the issues our country is facing and am confident my business mindset and common sense solutions are resonating with the American people. Politicians are all talk and no action and the American public is ready for a leader with a proven track record of success.
A SurveyUSA poll says in a head-to-head contest Trump would beat Clinton, with 45 percent of the vote, compared to Clinton’s 40 percent. The poll also finds that 30 percent of respondents believe Trump will eventually be the Republican nominee, leading the field. Jeb Bush comes second, with 20 percent
